HA90 MP3/WMA player

When I try to transfer MP3 files from my computer to the SD disk I get about half a gig on my one gig card and them I get a pop-up box tha says "can not create file or folder" It always happens around the same number of files or memory used (150 files or 1/2 gig). I'm using XP OS and itunes for ripping files from CD to folder on my desk top and then attempt to copy them to card. Help please!

When I was looking at this product, I contacted the manufacturer and they made it clear the unit worked best with a 512 mb or smaller card. The problem is not with Sandisk or the SD manufacturer, it is with the HA90.

The problem is that the formatting of the memory card. Most cards are formatted in the 'FAT' format, which has a limit of I believe 133 files on the root drive. I took my 1 GB memory card, and reformatted it in the 'FAT32' format. I am now able to fill my memory card to capacity, and yes, then HA90 does read the entire card.

    The solution listed by ramblin5 as the best solution is wrong. Read the posting from ironhead3fan, that should work for you.

Well I totally dissagree. I think the fault is with the card manufacturer for having a restricted root directory. When you buy a 1GB SD Card you would expect to be able to fill it. I have had the same problems.

Ramblin5, Thanks, I figured it was something to do with windows, I wonder if MACs would have same problem? I guess I will only spend money on 512 SD's then and just carry extras with me on the road

    All the baloney by computer illiterates. I buy 1GB cards on eBay right from China for about $3 and I get almost 1 GB of songs on them...about 400 songs. No reformatting or problems. You just have to remember not to put songs in folders on the cards.

I have the same problem on my 2 Gig SD disk. I called SanDisk and they said the Fat32 windows restriction will only allow so many files in the root directory. The rest have to go into folders. But this HA90 won't read files in folders - so I'm stuck with a 2 gig card and can only use 1/2 a gig of the space

    If you would have bothered to read the instructions you would have seen that 1GB is the largest card you may use! So you're stuck because you don't read!

I have a road tech ha90 digital music player . inserting a sd card with mp3 and wma format music . i get a erro message.


First, many SD storage music players do not support HCSD. Is the SD card bigger than 2gig? This could be the problem. Try a smaller SD card.

Can't get it to recognize music we added on a new scan disk


All you need is a SD disc usb holder to transfer files from your windows Media player onto it. Use the Windows converter to format your songs to mp3. Just right click on the songs or albums in your library and then select Send to > Windows Audio Converter > A window will pop up that has the songs selected ready to convert, but you need to first use the browse icon to make sure the MP3 SD disc is the output folder you are sending the music to. Just see whether the disc holder is plugged into the g or h drive, then once that has been done you can start the conversion. Once that is done, you should be able to play the music back on your HD Road Tech mp3 palyer. ONe last point, make sure to uncheck 'add my converted files to my library' as that will double up the same music selection in your library. Remember you are just wanting to copy the mp3 files to the external SD disc for your player not make mp3 files for your pc media player. Hope this helps.

I own the player on my 2004 HD Softail Deuce. I have a catalog of various sizes of sd cards from my original 64mb up to 2gb. The problem you are having could be that you have the music in WMI instaed of having converted it to the mp3 format with your windows player. Be sure to use the lowest quality when converting to the mp3 as you will not notice the difference in the playback. Also do not be surprised that you cannot get what you think on a 2 gig sd card. One of my 2 gig cards has the entire Led Zeppelin studio catalog including some various Robert Plant solo songs from his various albums. I buy my sd cards from Microcenter here in Ohio for around $7.00 each. The local wal-marts are making a killing with 512mb for around $15.00 each, so shop around for the cards you need.

Harley Davidson Road Tech HA90 SD card problem


reformatting the 1gb or the 2gb disk is a snap, but that won't fix your problem, here's how to reformat then I'll discuss the way to make a 1 or 2 GB work, first with the disk and also the reader that came with the Harley MP3 player just plug it into the usb port on your computer, then click start on the computer, then my computer, now you will see Icons for the A,D,E and F drive, the F drive being your storage device ( sound disk ) right click on this and when the drop down window appears you will see either fat or fat32, most likely it's already set to fat32, if not then change it to fat32, now just click on format, a drop down will tell you that all info on the disk will be lost, click O.K. and it will reformat the card.Now to get your Harley HA90 Road Tech MP3 player to read the card, the player will not read a card that has the soundtracks in a folder so you have to open the folder, I have explained the how to in another post on this site, so to save space try to find it, if you cannot then make a post to let me know

The WMA files are probably copyright protected, and this device was not set up to read them. I would try converting them all ot Mp3 format - you will probably have better luck. Here's the official Harley page that I found:
Here's the best bet - there are pdf instructions for upgrading the software and a few other functions, but no user's manual for it per se:

Road Tech? HA90 MP3/WMA? Digital Music Player


My husband hooked one up with Kuryakyn speakers (amplified). BUT - we CANNOT get the music on the card...Windows seems to not like the idea of synch-ing without folders and the MP3 player cannot read folders... I'm pulling my hair out over this!!!!

Got a new SD Card + Card Reader but when I download my music on it...


You cannot just move WMA songs onto the card and play in the MP3 player. MP3 format may work this way, but for sure the player only seems to be able to recongize WMA files when syncd through Windows Media with the USB cord attached. Be sure the DESELECT 'copy folder hierecy' under the sync options/properties of the MP3 player drive or SD card drive.

When using XP Pro and Windows Media Player you can transfer WMA but you have to go into the PROPERTIES of the drive (mine was mp-556/G: drive) and DESELECT the option to transfer folder hierecy. The MP3 player is not able to reconginize the folder structure it usually creates.

This player only seems to be able to transfer MP3 format with Vista, using windows media player sync. I can syne MP3s formats, but not WMAs at all. Unless someone found otherwise

Largest SD Card Size???


The 4gb cards are called SDHC(secure digital high capacity), check the packaging for the sdhc logo, if it just says sd your max size is 2gb.
